Minnie Mouse’s Stand Mixer

This stand mixer could be found in Minnie Mouse’s kitchen in her house in the former Mickey’s Toontown Fair. It’s now a prop that has made it to the Walt Disney Archives. It was on display at this year’s Destination D event.

I’ll be the first to admit I did not mourn the loss of Toontown Fair. I didn’t care for it as Birthdayland or Starland either. I do know many grew up visiting this land, so its loss is much more significant to them. I grew up with several defunct attractions, so I understand.

For me, by the time the land opened, I wanted to go on coasters and Haunted Mansion while in Magic Kingdom (though I was always ready to hop on the monorail to go to EPCOT Center instead!). It was of more interest to my younger sisters throughout the 90s. I’ve only made it over to the area in recent years during Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party to get candy. :)

Regardless of whether you loved or disliked Toontown Fair, it’s nice that these pieces of history still have a home in the archives. I look forward to seeing the re-imagining and expansion of New Fantasyland, and what, if any, nods to the old area can be found!

  2. Like you, I was past the age when Toontown appealed to me when it opened. Come to think of it, I don’t think I’ve ever even gone back there. When I was a kid, it was Mickey’s Birthdayland, and while it’s changed over the years, I agree it’s nice to see some of the stuff still has meaning to some…
